that are less and less areas that are unpopulated. but there's good news. it turns out we have the technology to deflect asteroids if we have a decade or more of notice. nasa has been working on this. the national academies has written a report on this. we understand how to deflect asteroids if we have advanced warning. he can't deflect anything, you can't explore anything, you cannot learn anything about something that you haven't yet found. that's the key. in the next video i'll show you what the b6 12 foundation is doing but we built a telescope, it's about the size of a fedex moving van. it is going to orbit the sun and it is going to track near earth asteroids. according to the national academies findings, the best way to find asteroids is in the infrared were asteroids are brighter, and from a vantage point where it can always look away from the sun. in orbit around the sun, something like -- optionally with this thing will orbit the sun and that's where you see the white discs. what it can see the light green line is the orbit of the earth. so s&l goes around the sun faster than the ea

down a member. we don't know how that works. with technologies yet to be invented, so a lot of this will be technology development and a lot of it will be nanotechnology. what we need to be do is to be able to record hundreds of thousands of brain cells at the same time. and be able to afford to understand how the circuits work. that's the brain activity now that's been talked about. very early days we really don't have a scientific plan yet about milestones and timetables and costs, but it's getting to be a very exciting moment to put something together that we couldn't have thought of. >> more with dr. francis collins sunday night at 8 p.m. on c-span's q&a. >> and now to london for prime minister's question time live from the bridge house of commons. every wednesday while parma is in session, prime minister david cameron takes questions from members of the house of commons. prior to questions on the house is wrapping up other business. this is live coverage on c-span2. >> and we have created a growing social investment market supported by capital which will enable them to
